ORLANDO, FL - Spring may have finally arrived for the U.S., but for grower/shippers like Gourmet Trading Co., domestic production is only one part of its extensive high-quality program. With premium offerings of blueberries and asparagus year-round, Senior Sales Associate Ben Martin joined me to talk key regions and packs for the company.

“It’s a great time of year for availability and a combination of price, volume, and quality,” Ben tells me from the bustling Southern Exposure floor show, stating that the company is in the middle of peak asparagus season out of Mexico.

Gourmet Trading Company is prepping for its blueberries to start its domestic season, as the company finishes up its off-shore production. 

“In the next couple of weeks, we’ll start with Florida and work our way up the East Coast,” Ben continues.

With specific packs and film wraps to lengthen the shelf-life of its products, Gourmet Trading Company is planning another year of high-quality produce for its customers.
